Filing an Auto Glass Claim in Minnesota


In anticipation of the winter windshield repair season, we wanted to remind you of what you can expect when you file a claim for windshield repair. Glass Source can help you through the process so you can get your windshield repaired and get back on your way.

What Is Minnesota’s Auto Glass Claim Law?

Minnesota requires insurers to provide comprehensive coverage for damaged safety glass regardless of a policy holder’s deductible. For this reason, most drivers in the state have auto glass coverage. An insurance carrier cannot require a minimum amount on a safety glass repair claim. You can learn more about Minnesota’s auto glass laws here.

My Windshield’s Cracked. Now What?

When you experience a crack or chip, your first call should be to Glass Source, your trusted auto glass repair company. We will handle the entire insurance claim process for you. To get the process started, we will need four pieces of information:

  1. The date the damage occurred (which is why it’s smart to call us right away)
  2. The name of your insurance carrier (ex: Geico, Western National, Progressive, etc.)
  3. Your insurance policy number (usually between 9 and 13 digits long)
  4. Your vehicle’s year, make, and model (ex: 2023 Kia Telluride)

That’s all we’ll need to get in touch with your carrier and start the claims process. In the meantime, we’ll schedule your repair appointment with our mobile auto glass repair team. We can meet you at your home or work to fix your windshield and get you back on the road safely.

What Will I Owe?

If you’re filing an insurance claim, it’s likely that you won’t owe anything. We’ll submit the claims paperwork to your carrier and bill them directly. We won’t ask for payment from you at the time of your windshield repair service. After the work is completed, be sure to follow up with your insurance agent to make sure the claim has been processed and closed.

Windshield chips and cracks are annoying interruptions to your day. With support from Glass Source, you can be on your way in a matter of hours without having to manage your insurance claim yourself. Add Glass Source to your phone so you’re prepared when the unexpected happens.
